Yes, the border crisis began after Obama started messing around with executive amnesties

posted at 6:01 pm on August 6, 2014 by Allahpundit

Characteristically excellent work by John Sexton in tracing the timeline on when, and why, kids from Central America started streaming north. Democrats are in a weird position on this point. On the one hand, they insist endlessly to American audiences that Obama’s 2012 amnesty for DREAMers (a.k.a. DACA) had nothing to do with drawing illegals here. That’s crackpot nonsense, the sort of stuff you’ll find (gasp) Ted Cruz pushing. On the other hand, the White House is quietly putting the word out in Central America that whatever they’ve heard about the U.S. handing out “permisos” to young illegals lately isn’t true.

So which is it? Is executive amnesty drawing illegal immigrant kids here or isn’t it? Sexton:

[I]n June 2011, Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) released the so-called Morton memos. The Morton memos were internal ICE memos which spelled out an expansion of “prosecutorial discretion” for certain individuals who might otherwise be facing deportation. This was one of the solutions to bypass Congress which progressive groups had recommended earlier in 2011…

During the summer and fall of 2011 the promise of “prosecutorial discretion” made big waves in immigrant communities. In fact, almost immediately there was concern that disreputable people were spreading false information about what “prosecutorial discretion” would mean. On August 20, 2011, two days after the White House announcement, the American Immigration Lawyers Association issued a warning (in English and Spanish) titled “Consumer Advisory Do Not Be Misled.”…

It’s clear from contemporaneous statements made by individual immigration attorneys that there was significant confusion about what the change meant. For instance, NY immigration attorney Allen Kaye said at the time, “there’s a lot of misinformation about this and many people think there’s a new immigration law, there’s a new amnesty. No, it’s just a policy.”

The buzz about amnesty for kids started in 2011, a full year before DACA, which explains why Rick Perry was seeing an uptick in border crossings by kids before DACA was even issued. Then, as the numbers began to explode this year, Border Patrol agents asked illegals why so many were suddenly deciding to make the journey north. The answer they got from some of them was that they had been told that June 2014 was the deadline for new “permisos” to be issued. Where that date come from is unclear, but it happens to coincide with DHS’s extension of DACA eligibility for kids who are already part of the program. Somehow, whether through deliberate disinformation being circulated by coyotes or through simple misunderstandings of American law amplified by Central American media, it may be that DACA developments are driving the surge of illegals even now, more than two years later.

But don’t take my word for it:

Children coming into the United States are confused about whether they qualify for President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, according to Representative Luis Gutiérrez (D., Calif.), who said that criminal enterprises are enticing children with false promises of a “permiso.”

“I have 15-year-olds in my office today, who came to my office today, and you know what we told them? ‘You don’t qualify for DACA.’ Why? Because they came here four years ago, when they were 11, and they weren’t here by 2007,” Gutiérrez told reporters Friday evening as the House prepared to vote on a border supplemental bill and legislation freezing the DACA program.

The House’s foremost amnesty shill himself believes that DACA has, inadvertently, provided a pretext for smugglers to drum up business in illegal immigration. Which is ironic because, as Sexton explains, Gutierrez himself touted Obama’s first halting step towards prosecutorial discretion in exempting DREAMers from the law in 2011. He helped spread the idea in Spanish-speaking media that kids might be able to stay, and now kids are showing up confused when they’re told they don’t qualify. I don’t know whether to think that was a mistake on his part or, given his views on illegal immigration, something deliberate.

Exit question: If a comparatively modest amnesty like DACA was able to trigger a crisis at the border, what’s Obama’s upcoming mega-amnesty for adult illegals going to do?

Not just Obama. Also OUR side. We’re talking about the R House leadership, and Rubio et al that passed amnesty in the Senate.

Some questions for those folks from the national socialist left:

Why isn’t Obama securing the border in the face of disease, Terrorism and crime threats from the Illegal Invasion?

Are we expected to swallow the line of BS that he doesn’t know about the Illegal Invasion?

How many people will have to die from one of these threats before Obama will do his Constitutionally mandated duty and enforce the law?

Do you on the national socialist left who still support Obama and his lawlessness realize you are complicit in the results of his Illegal Invasion?

While Obama tells the world he’s going to send more money to Africa “… because it’s the right thing to do…” maybe someone should ask him why he’s leaving these 40,000 Iraqi Christians and other minority religious groups to die of thirst on Sinjar mountain after Islamic State drove them there with death threats.

esr1951 on August 6, 2014 at 6:34 PM

Let me clear something up.

Those sending these teenagers up from central america are not confused at all by the limitations of “prosecutorial discretion” outlined in DACA.

The commentariat (not just Allah) is who is confused.

It’s true, the letter of the law only applies to those here from 2007(something like that) and before. But 2 points –

1. It’s the honor system. very very few “kids” (or those under 31 see DACA) are denied legal status. I think it’s over 90% acceptance. In reality this is what is meant by prosecutorial discretion.
2. DACA, the gang of eight and statements by both the president and the boehner are the magnet. The “kids” coming up from centrtal America are not going to be deported (they figured this out from the MSM rhetoric) so their gamble was a smart one. If they can finagle DACA status then that is just something extra.

So, when the commentariat argues about whether the illegals were
encouraged by a FALSE reading of DACA, it is the commentariat that is confused(and sort of stupid) not the illegals.

The illegals got what they wanted(they won’t be deported) , so they obviously weren’t confused, and it isn’t DACA alone. It was the rhetoric of the progressive Rs , Obama’s hints at a broader amnesty, and DACA that brought the illegals up. OH -that and probable illegal coordination by the feds – Mexico is allowing the illegals safe passage (which is historically not very Mexican so….)

Just wanted to clear up this disrespectful anti Hispanic racist stuff about the “ignorant” illegals. Americans are ignorant, not the illegals.

BoxHead1 on August 6, 2014 at 6:35 PM

You’ve got to hand it to Clinton and the 103rd Congress. Left to their own, they still didn’t screw up like this. As the left has taken over, Dems have become lethal doses of stupid.

I’m not a defeatist.

I believe that Americans can learn from their mistakes and that pain and experience are the best and most efficient teachers.

Obama can only grant those illegal aliens a temporary amnesty. He cannot grant them green cards ( legal permanent residency) and he cannot grant them citizenship or even a pathway to citizenship.

All he can do is offer them ‘prosecutorial discretion’ and refuse to prosecute them while he’s in office. He can give the work permits and a temporary social security number so they can work.

When he’s gone, they may well be removed, too, when Americans see what has befallen their communities and what has happened to their wages in two years. When they think of what having no borders means for their own children, and how quickly their community resources were siphoned off, Americans will move to protect their families and communities.

It was supposed to be the last amnesty and stop the uncontrolled flow of peopel crossing the border. So it was failure by any standard.

Temporary workers (those having worked over 60 days) was estimated at 250,000 but it ended up being close to 2million (2+ million with long term residents). Imagine if our current estimates of 12million end up being that far off.

These entities are not known for their concern for human life….The Government is not only allowing them to fund the illegal and evil activities of these cartels, but is also inspiring them to do so,” the order states. “These men and women [law enforcement], with no small risk to their own safety, do their best to enforce our laws and protect the citizens of the United States. It seems shameful that some policymaker in their agency institutes a course of inaction that negated their efforts. It has to be frustrating to those that are actually doing the work of protecting Americans when those efforts are thwarted by a policy that supports lawmakers.”

So.

No where does that even suggest the idiotic conspiracy theory you pimped.

It even claims federal officers are in the forefront of protecting American citizens. Something lacking in Fast & Furious.

And “lawmakers” in this case are the democrats, Obama and Holder.

cozmo on August 6, 2014 at 7:19 PM

There’s been a problem for a long time.

As usual, Choomie made it worse when he tried to fix it.

St. Ronnie remains the biggest culprit. He was the original Amnestizer in 1986.

The 1986 became the magnet for millions of illegals we have today.

Raygun screwed it up.

Ned Pepper on August 6, 2014 at 6:15 PM

True enough, but there was supposed to be a quid pro quo for increased security on which, as always, the Demos reneged.

But, if we wish to go to the source, that’s Teddy Kennedy in ’65, now isn’t it?

St Ted is the real culprit and he screwed us all.

Drug Cartels Fire 50 Caliber Weapons At Border Patrol

The shooting has prompted fears that Mexican drug cartels, known to be extremely dangerous and responsible for over 75,000 deaths in the drug war that has plagued the country for the last seven years, are now bringing their brand of violence into the United States via the unsecured 3000-mile southern border.

cozmo on August 6, 2014 at 7:26 PM

Because Reagan “trusted” the demo rats…
He trusted that the border would be secured…..

This time we won’t fall for that trap….

redguy on August 6, 2014 at 6:51 PM

Reagan was also from California and California decides immigration policy for the rest of us.

The Cartels can buy weapons from the mexican army….and likely do.

Obysmal has encouraged the camel’s nose of an illegals invasion under the tent. His policies and practices run contrary to the oath that he took to secure our nation.

Meanwhile at the northern border…

“he U.S. Border Patrol says it arrested a 42-year-old Rwandan citizen at the border of Maine and Canada who is wanted for war crimes.

A Canadian warrant says Jean LΘonard Teganya is wanted for deportation for violating human rights under the Crimes Against Humanity and War Crimes Act related to the Rwandan genocide in the 1990s.

The border patrol says an agent found Teganya in the Houlton, Maine, area near the border with Canada on Aug. 3. Teganya was sent to Houlton Station for processing on a violation of entry without inspection.

The patrol says a database search revealed the warrant for Teganya. He was turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Office of Enforcement and Removal Operations.

Teganya’s lawyer said he wasn’t aware his client was detained….”

Why is that anymore idiotic than saying Obama intentionally armed the drug cartels to facilitate gun control legislation?

In fact, on its face, redguy’s theory sounds more realistic, considering although Obama might be evil, he damn sure isn’t stupid.

You are correct. He never should have made the mistake of trusting democrats to secure the border. The 1986 amnesty never should have happened, and we should learn from his mistake and never do it again. Right, Ned?
